Whoever said that the more things change the more they look alike clearly hasn't read this book. It's a major departure from the usual solid storytelling the author served. There are less people to keep track of. I didn't know what score to give this book. It could be a one, two or three stars. The reading experience was shambolic as I suffered from reader's burnout. On the plus side, the bittersweet conclusion appealed to my nature. The only predictable thing was the overuse, again, of more than one attempting killer, which Krista Davis uses all the time to complicate her plot. That is all. ( )

An easy light read. Recipes included and gardening tips. One in a series of Domestic Diva mysteries.? First one I have read. Would try another at some point. ( )

Sophie finds a purse belonging to Wolf's missing ex-wife in his backyard. He has to go on leave from his police job. I'm finding it difficult to really summarize this book without giving away too much of the plot so I'll just give a few reactions to it. This is the first book I've read in this series although it is the sixth for me. I found myself struggling to figure out the relationships between the characters. Sometimes I found it difficult to even figure out who someone was or what their occupation was. I have a feeling this is a series that should be read in order. Each chapter was introduced by a snippet of a gardening advice column, alternating between Sophie's and Natasha's advice which were sometimes polar opposites. I'm not really sure if this series works for me. I probably need to go back and begin with the first in the series to determine that. The solution to the mystery wasn't a surprise. There were definite pointers to it from early in the book. I'm not in a hurry to go back and read the first in the series although I haven't ruled it out. ( )

There was a lot going in Diva Digs up the Dirt, the sixth domestic diva mystery. One storyline, involving a cable tv reality show, seems to be in place as a vehicle for Natasha, Sophie's rival in the world of domesticity. However, the main storyline and mystery, which involve Sophie and her friend Nina in another crime, was much more fulfilling. Roscoe Greene and his eccentric family add a great deal of life to this story and I liked how everything came together as the book neared the end, with the seemingly disparate storylines. ( )
